Attorney Brittany Weiner Named 2016 Rising Star by Super Lawyers
Imbesi Law P.C., partner Brittany Weiner selected by Super Lawyers
Brittany Weiner has represented parties in high-profile litigation, including class action lawsuits involving Uber, DraftKings, iHeartRadio, FanDuel, Wholefoods and Proctor & Gamble.
Ms. Weiner was likely chosen because of her FINRA hearing victories against major broker-dealers including J.P. Morgan Securities, LLC and Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc. "Ms. Weiner has been able to defeat large companies in forums that require above-average trial advocacy skills," said Vincent Imbesi, a partner of the law firm Imbesi Law, P.C. "She has been able to win consistently because of her strong work ethic and knowledge of the practice areas," he added.
Ms. Weiner recently won a federal jury trial in the Southern District of New York on behalf of employees that alleged they were not paid legal wages. "In her most recent jury trial victory, the employer (through its attorney) conveyed that it would not settle for a fair amount Brittany requested prior to the trial," Mr. Imbesi said, referring Ms. Weiner's last federal employment trial. "The employer, or its counsel, could have saved significant amounts of money by settling because the verdict was significantly higher than proposed settlement amount," concluded Mr. Imbesi.
Brittany Weiner has represented clients involved in litigation that resulting in significant verdicts or settlements, obtaining millions of dollars for her clients. She is currently a partner of Imbesi Law, P.C., managing the firm's employment, FINRA arbitration and class action divisions.
